Another sad memorial in a bleak landscape #roadsidememorial #memorial #transport #socialdocumentary
This man sells sea water to upcountry people who use it medicinally. For people who have never seen the sea it can be intimidating to wade into the surf and they are not always dressed to be able to withstand a dunking. Shot on the Durban beachfront.  #waterseller #beachfront #sea #coast

Found this sad little memorial squeezed between coal mine dump and a factory in Witbank. #minedump #coal #coalmine #industrial #industry #memorial #roadsidememorial
Stagnant pond on a coal dump. Weirdly beautiful. I would avoid swimming however. Located on the Ecca group part of the Karoo Super Group in South Africa. I think that’s enough said. #tailings #tailingsdam #mine #minedump #coalmine #industrialwaste #industrialwasteland #toxic #landscapephotography
Rainbow Gorge Cathedral Peak reserve Drakensberg mountains. I first hiked in this area in 1977. I have never tired of it. #forest #foreststream #naturephotography #landscape #landscapephotography
From the Temple of Heaven Beijing. I like to take photos of people taking photos. Originally posted in Black and white I decided I prefer this colour version. #china #beijing #girl #parenting #modeling

This is a serious mountain. Shot last year in the middle of summer. Never seen so much snow in my life. The incomparable Mt Everest from the Tibetan side. #mteverest #everest #landscapephotography #landscape #mountain #tibet #himalayas
A barbershop owner I met in  Malvern Johannesburg. Trying a new way to process images. #streetphotography #streetstyle #barber #barbershop #socialdocumentary
Taking photographs this morning in Troyeville, the suburb adjoining my suburb, and came across this man cleaning up around his home. #streetphotography #socialdocumentary #cleaning #sweeping.
Proud home owner I met cleaning the pavement outside her lovely house. She is from Newcastle KZN, and so am I. #zulu #zuluwoman #homeowner #streetphotography #socialdocumentary #cleaning #sweeping #homedecor #houseproud
Pilgrims at 5600m on the three day trek around Mt Kailash in Tibet. What was amazing with this pair was the older lady is totally bling and a grandchild is leading her and directing the placement of every step. A lesson in patience, compassion, dedication and determination. #kora #compassion #blind #prayerflags #pilgrims #buddhism #tibet #kailash

Very old mine dump in Booysens Joburg. This pit is from the informal/illegal miners we call Zama Zamas that operate all over the gold fields of the Witwatersrand. A deadly occupation these men fight vicious territorial wars and face a highly toxic and dangerous working environment. We run into them on occasion and so far have had no trouble with them. #minedump #tailingsdam #mining #enviromentaldisaster #goldmining

This is not something I would normally shoot. I’m not font of abstractions but this alley in Braamfontein caught my eye and it was such an obvious image I couldn’t say no. #urbanphotography #wall #abstractart

Went camping last weekend. For four days. It rained for the first two days, really rained. South Africans don’t do well in the rain. We are unused to it and we tend to hide indoors when ever the weather gets bad. That’s not an option when camping. In desperation I shot this image of the rain splashing into the farm dam. It sums up the mood of the day I think. Then the sun came out and it was glorious. #rain #lake #water #rainyweather #raindrops #gloomy
